Dual abelian varieties over the complex numbers

Posted by Martin Orr on Tuesday, 26 April 2011 at 12:35

In this post I will define dual abelian varieties over the complex numbers. The motivation is that polarisations can be interpreted as isogenies from an abelian variety to its dual. For the moment, all this is tied to Hodge structures so only works over the complex numbers, but this is the view of polarisations which will we will generalise later to other fields.
